'I am not much for one for djing on my own. I'm not very good at it. I suppose it has to do with missing a crucial element, the people. So what do you do? Well you do "radio", which for me, is not really djing anyway. it's about records. On the spot. And sharing them.
I had a recent discussion with Vladimir Ivkovic about all this: the cult of rarity, the diggers digging their own grave with a Grado shovel. A podcast is not a cock contest, it's just a few songs (out of so many) put together with the will of transmitting something. And not necessarily sense. That "something" is in the eye of the beholder though. Some will hear it as boring, some as doom, some as smiles. As long as something passes along and in between the lines, that's fine with me.
With thanks to Rupert Cross, Brenda Harlow, Vladimir Ivkovic, Ziggy Devrient, Nathan Wilkins, Dusan Jankovic and many others for sharing those with me.' Ivan Smagghe
